Plaxico vs Cotchery?
Would both be active & available if the young money crew is all able to go? Do we have 5 wide active on gameday? If not, which of those 2 is active? Will Ben push for Plax to play? Will Haley recognize the chemistry Ben & Plax have?
All interesting questions to me...
Any "chemistry" between Ben & Plax is pretty cold after this many years. Even with 5 active, don't forget about Rainey, too.
Yea, I don't know how much "chemistry" remains with Ben and Plex over the years. It's not even the same offense. And Plex has looked like he doesn't have his football legs yet; he just looks like he's uncordinated or something. Itchy Crotchery seems more in the flow of the offense. I have a feeling he will be the more productive player as of right now. I would like to see a heirarchy of calling plays that go to:
Brown and Heath are our most reliable players in the passing game. I think that is obvious. Wallace has been ridiculously undependable and Sanders is not as trustworthy as Brown and Heath. They are our true $. I think they finally figured out how to tee this all up. Give Dwyer the majority of the carries, with Redman as the change of pace guy (That combo give defenses headaches), and target Brown and Heath the majority of the plays. If they roll with that, things will go well.
The Wide Receiving Corp mush look as such if healthy:
1) Antonio Brown
2) Mike Wallace / Emmanuel Sanders
3) Jerrico Cotchery
4) Plaxico Burress
Cotchery has made a lot of plays this year on third down and I would believe the Steelers will use Burress exclusively in the red zone where he can be most efffective.

I'd dress Plax. We're still not scoring enough. We need him in the RedZone.
If Tomlin really wants to send a message, don't dress Wally.
I would dress Plax too for red zone purposes.

no guarantee he would've caught that wide open pass in the End Zone.

Wallace was WIDE open in the end zone, there wasn't a defender anywhere near him. if Batch throws the ball accurately that is a TD catch 99 out of 100 times.

I want him to be successful for the Steelers but I believe he was only here as a stop gap.
